Some other Kindle Fire related things

Just remembered there are two other things that I wanted to say relating to my Kindle Fire.

First, the touch sensitivity seems problematic for me....I've heard people complain that its too sensitive, for me its not sensitive enough...there are times I get stuck moving, because I really have to press for it to see that I am pressing the next button. OTOH, I'm having a lot of trouble with they keyboard...because it keeps trigger the wrong key next to what I've pressed. Wonder if the alignment is actually the problem?

Meanwhile...the Kindle Fire's keyboard is moving up another issue.

Most of my personal domainnames have .net, and where a domain extension is applicable, only .com is offered on the Kindle Fire's keyboard (doesn't do long press for some other extensions like the iPhone did.) Also my main email domain, is @chen-online.net...and the Kindle Fire's keyboard makes it extra hard to type the '-'...when it is showing the '.com' keyboard.

I had gotten this domain before I knew that lots of places consider domainnames with '-'s in them to be spam (though I didn't know there was also a rule against 12 letter domain names [spamassassin rule]....cursed that my parents' gave me an 8 letter name to go with a 4 letter surname...), and before there were smartphones/tablets where typing '-' or numbers presents extra challenges. And, last weekend, there was a service outage that affected most of my @chen-online.net email addresses. So, I've been thinking for a long time that I need to migrate my accounts over to another domain name (and perhaps find a email centric hosting provider...or leaving the domain with the registrar and use their email services). Seems the Kindle Fire is pushing this up in priority now....

Oh, there's a third annoyance. I emailed the link to an app to my Kindle fire a couple days ago, and it opened the browser and downloaded it and all was good. But, now every time I open the browser it downloads it again. And, can't make it stop...I've cleared cache, history, cookies, etc. It just downloaded it yet again.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
